Temperatures soared into the mid 90s this afternoon, and then scattered thunderstorms developed, especially from Wake county to the south. The storms that developed were strong and produced heavy rain, with Fayetteville reporting some flash flooding.
The storms will diminish this evening, but an isolated shower or storm will be possible into the overnight hours.
More summer like weather is on the way for the rest of the week with temperatures gradually going down. Afternoon highs will still be above average, mainly in the upper 80s and low 90s, right through the end of the week, and there's a daily chance for a shower or thunderstorm.
A cold front will slide through on Sunday, and cooler and less humid air will filter into the region for early next week.
